Concordia Student Union council members voted unanimously last week to approve a motion to have CUTV film the January 2011 council meeting in a new pilot project.
After the filming in January, the unedited content will be posted online and council will then vote on whether to adopt filming into the CSU’s standing regulations at the March meeting.
CUTV filmed the October council meeting despite a contentious vote rejecting a motion to formally invite them to film. Many councillors spoke of feeling uncomfortable with the filming at the time.
Despite strongly opposing the motion in October, CSU president Heather Lucas said she was always for the filming from the start. She chalked council’s original reaction up to the wording of the motion. She insisted that she was speaking up for councillors who were too intimidated to oppose the motion.
